We are seeking a Head of Department to lead our Department of Physics.

This is an outstanding opportunity to play a critical role in leading the continuing development of a highly successful department. Reporting to the Dean of the Faculty of Science, you will have a major contribution to make to the future development of the Faculty and the University in addition to the Department.

We are seeking a highly capable leader with the vision to provide strategic direction to the Department, allied to a strong national and ideally international standing as a scholar and commitment to maintaining an active research profile. You will need good people-leadership skills to ensure development of a collegiate approach across all functions within the Department and the ability to form key strategic relationships outside the University.

This appointment is for a defined fixed period as Head of Department (normally three years) which may be extended. On completion of this fixed period you would move back into your professorial/senior academic role. The successful appointee will receive an additional managerial allowance which recognises the seniority and wide ranging responsibilities of the role.

The selection process will involve a discussion group with selected members of the Department plus a panel interview.

To apply, please answer the shortlisting question and provide a current CV.
